About the property

2 BR/2BA luxury cabin, trout fishing, kids & dogs love this former summer camp

This luxurious mountain cabin sits atop a knoll overlooking a very large, stocked trout pond ready for fishing. Enjoy grilling out on the home's deck with the new grill while taking in the beautiful view, or just relaxing on the porch by candlelight listening to the cascading water over the rocks of the stream running to the side of the house.

Inside you'll find a very large great room with a combination living/kitchen/dining room which is perfect for relaxing entertainment by the wood-burning, native stone fireplace---perfect on the chilly mountain nights. The living room is equipped with a new HD Television and Blu-Ray/DVD player, as well as DirecTV satellite TV with movie and sports channel packages. The home has wireless, high-speed internet access. The kitchen is equipped with all utensils, as well as virtually all baking, grilling, and other cooking tools that you'll need to prepare a gourmet meal. New glassware and dinnerware sets for 8 are stocked in the cabinets. A coffee maker with permanent filter, toaster, convection toaster oven, and microwave oven are in the home, as are a new washer and dryer set.

This home has just recently been placed on VRBO and has new furnishings, linens, and high-end mattresses. The master BR has a King-sized bed and the second BR is a Queen-sized mattress (both Stearns & Foster). Sheets are 1000-thread count. The living room has a suitably comfortable sleeper sofa (Queen) and new sleeper loveseat (Twin) to make the home sleep 7-8 people, if needed (owner approval).

Originally a summer camp over fifty years ago, the property on which the home now sits is a private, family estate comprised of 66 mountainous acres with two ponds that are fed by 3 streams that all originate on the property. The home sits on the footprint of what was the camp's headmaster's cabin. The original native stone steps lead up the hill to the deck giving the cabin unique, historic character.

There are only two cabins on this camp now, although the tract of land is very large---66 acres---so the two homes on this property remain private from one another. A small mountain separates the two and they are not within sight or hearing range of the other.

There are two small fields at the top of the mountain that are perfect for playing games with the family and throwing balls to the dogs, etc. Unused gravel roads and trails wind through the property and are perfect for leisurely strolls, short hikes, and dog-walking. There are some hidden trails in the forest for those that are brave-hearted that like outright bushwhacking! Kids absolutely love playing in the streams on the property sifting through the water looking for 'rubies' in the rocks and throwing pebbles in the pond.... And the trout-fishing is loads of fun. The largest pond is about an acre and has an outbuilding/garage overlooking that's used as an entertainment site with a very large deck for grilling, eating out, or just relaxing while watching the kids fish.

Structural relics of the old summer camp still exist throughout the property---stone foundations from the dining hall, a stone amphitheater in a mountain cove, old stone outdoor fireplaces, etc.----all making for interesting outdoor exploration.

This property is much more than a rental home---it's an adventure!

(Note: This is a newly added VRBO home, so look at my other home on the property if you'd like to see more reviews from former guest look at property number 350504. If this home is booked for the dates that you're interested in, then I suggest you consider the other home as well).

This property has all the amenities that you could ask for. The kitchen has all the appliances. The wood-burning fireplace has wood stacked ready for use. House sits off a main road with several hundred yards of buffer. Lots of hardwood trees.

Beautiful Secluded Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

David's place is absolutely amazing. It was more than we were expecting. There are two cabins on the property, but both are secluded. We had the house overlooking the pond. The layout is awesome, big open living room and kitchen, and two bedrooms with super comfy beds. There is a big firepit area near the pond where we enjoyed a few fires. Trails around the property lead you to big open areas. There's a creek running along the property for those who like creek walking :)

You feel far from Brevard, but it's a quick and beautiful drive into the town. So much to do within a short distance.

If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing mountain getaway, this is definitely the place you're looking for. David is quick to respond, and super helpful with anything you might need. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back. Thank you so much David!

Lovely and quiet property, convenient to Brevard

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and quiet propety, only about 9 miles or so drive into Brevard, cloae to Gorges State Park. Favorites were indoor fireplace, front porch, and grounds of propety. Very spacious and private in feel - very much a “check out” (from busy life) kind of place. Fishing pond a little frustrating for men in family since they didn’t catch anything and coffee maker tricky to properly operate but otherwise no problems whatsover. Owner was very nice and readily available for any questions or concerns. Highly recommend.

A friend and I booked this great cabin for Eclipse weekend. It was perfect! Everything from the yummy towels and upscale bedding to the well appointed kitchen, the house was perfect. It was convenient to Brevard and Cashiers. There are lots of places to walk within the grounds of the cabin. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating. Perfect place to decompress.

Wonderful, secluded cabin with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with my wife & two kids. This place was fantastic. A lot of rental properties tend to skimp on the little things (kitchen appliances, towels, etc), but David has this place set up VERY nicely. I actually took notes on some new kitchen appliances that I want to upgrade to at home....

The cabin is very comfortable. Big deck with lots of seating and a big gas grill (and an extra propane tank!). Well-appointed kitchen. GREAT firepit area, complete with a ton of tiki torches for the mosquitoes. We spent quite a few nights down there with pie irons and skewers for s'mores. The area is wonderful, too. Brevard downtown is fun, Pisgah is GORGEOUS. Cannot recommend this place highly enough! Loved it, and hope to return next summer!

Gorges State Park Frozen Creek entrance is just down the road within biking distance where trails can be used for mountain biking and long hikes to some of the better waterfalls in the county. Downtown Brevard is approximately 10 miles away (15 minutes or less) with diverse restaurants, in terms of cuisine and price, lots of unique shops and art galleries, antiques, and one of the top toy stores in the country. Additionally, the Brevard Music Center hosts the Brevard Music Festival each summer with the conductor of the Boston Pops, and virtually every holiday has it's own festival in downtown Brevard. Just down the road from my home and property is Headwater's Outfitters with whitewater Rafting, kayaking, canoeing, water tubing, zip lining, and river snorkeling (~2 miles away). The Blue Ridge Parkway's most scenic views, in my opinion, are located between Hwy 215 (turn left at Headwaters Outfitters and drive up the mountain about 10 miles and turn right onto the Parkway). You'll pass Devil's Courthouse and Graveyard Fields---both high elevation quick hikes with great overlooks---and amazing views, often above the clouds, of Looking Glass Rock at almost 6,000 feet, and the return exit back down the mountain to Brevard at Hwy 276 where you'll pass the Pink Beds, Cradle of Forestry, Sliding Rock, and the well known and photographed Looking Glass Falls. The county has more than 20 summer camps attracting families from all US states and internationally. Gorges and Dupont State Forest are both well-known for their waterfalls, but Dupont more so for having been the setting for several recent movies such as the first of the Hunger Games series. Craft beer breweries and tours, especially at Brevard's Oskar Blues East Coast Brewery near downtown, Brevard Brewing Company, Pisgah, and Sierra Nevada's brewery in Mills River (about a 35 minute drive away). Transylvania County is the East Coast mountain biking capitol with some of the best trails in the country. Similarly Pisgah National Forest and the Shining Rock Wilderness area contain some of the best hiking east of the Mississippi.Specific highlights of the area include waterfall tours, as well as tours of the forest and waterfalls where the 'Hunger Games' and other movies were filmed. Brevard has become a mountain biking mecca, and home of the Oskar Blues craft beer brewery.
